ACCESS the future

Networked systems in society

Connected. Intelligent transportation systems, active buildings, and smart power grids. Home-based health care, wireless manufacturing and positioning systems that work anywhere and everywhere.

At the ACCESS Centre, we’re finding ways to facilitate communication between people, systems and machines.
A holistic approach helps us to achieve results with broad applicability.

Through networked systems we’re laying a foundation for a more sustainable society, less stressful life and a more responsible future.

As scientists and citizens we feel a particular need to be better informed, and to learn the larger picture. ACCESS Distinguished Lecture Series brings eminent speakers from prestigious universities to KTH from around the world. As part of ACCESS mission to interface with society many of these lectures extend to broader popular areas of interest, such as the sub-prime crisis, the roles that popularity and novelty play in eliciting attention in the Web or systems for intelligent buildings and environmental monitoring.

If you can't make it to KTH, join the live stream of the lecture.

Empowering people on social networks

Social networks have changed the world. Now they need to be changed. An ACCESS researcher is part of an international project to improve privacy on the web.

“Everybody has a Facebook or Google + account today, and is very happy about it,” he says. “We think everything is free on social networks, but in a sense, we pay by giving away our private data to be monetised by social network providers,”says Sarunas Girdzijauskas.

Research Projects

We lay the fundation for networked systems.
